Dusty loves the desert. It is clean, pure and unforgiving. Unlike Vegas which is always willing to give you a second chance. Dusty was working as a refrigerator repairman and studying desert ecology at night when his pre-enlistment application for the G.I. Joe Team was approved. He took Basic at Fort Bliss, TX and loved every minute of it.
Qualified expert: M-16, M-14, M-1911A1, M-60.
"It's not enough nowadays to have a rapid-reaction force responsive instantaneously to explosive situations in far flung corners of the globe. That force must be capable of surviving in a diverse array of hostile environments to accomplish its objectives. If that means having one expert for every type of environment on every team to take on survival responsibilities on that terrain, so be it."
The Sideshow Collectibles exclusive version of Dusty came with an extra accessory - the AC58 anti-armor rifle grenade.
A Pro Body 1.2 was used. The head was an original design.
